Gaspeite History, Lore, Facts, Myths and Pictures

 

Gaspeite is a relatively rare mineral, found only in a few localities. Its light green, almost apple green color is quite unique and some varieties are almost a neon green. It may contain brownish patches which may give it a distinctive character.

Gaspeite is found around nickel sulfide deposits and is named for the locality of Gaspe' Peninsula, Quebec, Canada where it was originally found, but the best material is now coming from North of Perth, Australia.  Hardness is 4.5 - 5 on the Mohs's scale.
